Become a School on Wheels tutor

Posted on November 2nd, 2015

Location: 600 East 7th Street Los Angeles CA 90021
Duration: Ongoing
First Day : Nov 2, 2015



Homeless children and youth fall behind in their education because of attending school inconsistently. They are capable students but their lives are filled with chaos; much of the family’s time is spent seeking shelter and nourishment, and the children frequently change schools. Los Angeles Unified School District reported 14,000 homeless children and youth in the 2014/2015 school year.

Would you consider becoming a School on Wheels volunteer tutor? Our mission is to provide educational enhancement and support for school aged children and youth who live in homeless shelters, in motels, in foster group homes and on the street. We reach our mission through volunteer tutors who are matched individually with a student and meet weekly for an hour to focus on any academic gaps the student may have. The weekly tutoring sessions also provide the students with needed consistency and mentorship.
